The all-new trailer for this manic action-comedy starring Ryan Renolds, Samuel L. Jackson, Selma Hayek and Antonio Banderas has arrived and it looks like some crazy fun will be had. Check it out below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
A burnt-out Michael Bryce (Reynolds) is pulled into a mad-cap dash to save hitman, and his one-time client Darius Kincaid (Jackson), by his wife Sonia (Hayek), in a crazy action-comedy adventure.
Incorporating Britney Spear’s intimate pop hit ‘…Baby One More Time’, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard finds Ryan Reynolds’s intrepid globe-trotting bodyguard Michael Bryce well-past burnout, and while he’s seeking some relaxation and soulful nourishment, courtesy of The Secret, he’s soon pulled into a gun-crazy battle of explosive ballistics and volatile behaviour thanks to Sonia Kincaid (Selma Hayek), the wife of Bryce’s one-time client and ultimate frenemy Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson), who has been kidnapped by the mafia, and this soon turns into a crazy mad-dash to free Darius and return these love-birds back to one another, all while giving Bryce the confidence he’s surely lost.
Incorporating even more crazy action into its narrative returning director Patrick Hughes has cranked up the thrills for this one, and with the added presence of Selma Hayek’s Sonia, who was a scene-stealing character in the original, and Antonio Banderas as a powerful Mafia gangster who is bent on exacting revenge on Darius, you can be sure that this one is about to be all kinds of fun.
The action is all the way dialled up here, and Hughes and his team bring their innovative approach to the jaw-dropping spectacle in this one, and while we only get a first taste here, I can confirm that audiences will be in for some very cool thrills thanks to The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard.
The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard is sure to be a massive crowd pleaser and audiences will be in for a rush when it arrives IN CINEMAS on August 19.
